Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle kiev train station. Out of bottle lets assume a dull lifeless gold with measly to no head flat limp lifeless looking beer shall we? The initial aroma is just a little sour, nothing really offensive and no overt diacetyl. The body is loose and the palate is not as oily as expected, just a little green apple in the finish, is actually pretty clean. Not really true to the zhguli spirit except for the low abv. Its not oily buttery, etc and not bad overall esp for Obolon
